Add my husband to the bunch who hate squash but liked this. I guess the appeal for them must be that the squash is kind of "diluted" or tamed by the other vegetables. Whatever the reason, we bot...

I thought this was bland and rather fattening. My husband thought that there were way to many onions. Not very flavorFULL!
